The daily grind can leave us feeling less than 100%. Not to mention that we are smack dab in the middle of cold and flu season. If you are like us, you don't have time to be sick. . . so there is no better time to turn to natural home remedies to do the trick!! By drinking this nutritious tonic you will, be helping to reduce the nutrient deficiencies that result from eating too many processed, refined foods. Natural healing apple cider vinegar kills germs and nourishes the body at the same time, so take a peek at some of the many different ways that you can benefit from the external and internal benefits of this concoction. . .

blemishes. age spots. arthritis. asthma. bruises. burns. cancer prevention. colds. constipation. coughs. cramps. dandruff. diabetes. diarrhea. digestion. ear infections, eczema. fatigue. headaches. heartburn. insect bites. insomnia
leg cramps. muscle soreness. morning sickness. sore throat. weight loss

2 cups of natural sparkling water
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar 
(unpasteurized and unfiltered, we like Bragg's) 
1 tsp maple syrup
stir well and add ice

**If you take ACV between meals or before going to bed, always rinse your mouth to avoid any 
prolonged vinegar contact with the enamel on your teeth. 

2 sprigs fresh rosemary, chopped
1 cup apple cider vinegar
5 drops lavender oil
3-5 cups warm water

Fill a large lidded jar with vinegar. Add rosemary. Fill the rest of the container with warm water. Store in a cool, dry place for about a week. Dilute the cider mixture with three cups of warm water and mix well with lavender oil. Use the tonic as a rinse after you shampoo for super shiny hair (follow with conditioner as needed) or keep in a spray bottle and spritz on hair to absorb oil.
Note: if you have color-treated or processed hair, it’s possible the tonic can effect your color. Check with your stylist before you mix up this magic!
